This session was hosted by Wayvie. Wayvie works with eco-friendly organisations, providing training and development to enhance people skills and behaviours; improving retention, engagement and performance in a green economy.

This was an interactive session, aimed at individuals in their early-mid careers who are looking to develop their transferable skills to drive change in the green sector. Our speakers, Peter Starr, Managing Director & Founder at Chilli & Wayvie and Becky Hayman, a Wayvie facilitator specialising in communication, focused on the following topics:

  • What are transferable/soft skills?
  • Why are they important in green roles – what does the research say?
  • A look into your own “soft skill” strengths and learning opportunities?
  • Deeper dive into the top skills identified by the audience.

The exercises during the workshop can help to support your development journey and work towards the next step in your career.
